I've spoken with a top progressive specialist in prostate cancer and a professor in a medical school urology department whose specialty is prostate cancer. Neither of them had heard of XMRV, even though the paper came out in 2006. IOW, even though it is gigantic news to us, it's more or less a sleeper in most places. So with this in mind, I emailed a CFS activist the other day about something we are discussing here, and he thanked me for information that was new to him. I guess what I'm saying is we all immerse ourselves in the latest happenings with CFS, they become common knowledge with us, and we assume that people on our side will automatically know. But they don't always know. And I'm not sure what to do about this. I don't want to become a pest telling them everything that comes up. Not sure what to do.
